INSEAD Alumni Fund Activities The INSEAD Alumni Fund (IAF) was established in 1976 by alumni to support the school, and has become an essential platform for cooperation between INSEAD and the global alumni community.
The IAF is represented in The Netherlands by a team of volunteers including two Co-Presidents (Theun van Halewijn and Chantal Stoffelsma), who are also members of the alumni association board. The Netherlands prides itself on a very engaged and supportive alumni community, with a high donor participation rate and numerous ‘salamander holders’ — miniature bronze, silver and gold salamanders are awarded for certain thresholds of lifetime giving, with the salamander being a key symbol of INSEAD and Fontainebleau.
One key achievement in The Netherlands has been the establishment of the ‘Dutch Business as a Force for Good initiative’ in 2019. This multi-year campaign has so far raised over €1 million from our alumni community, and already resulted in granting the very first ‘Dutch Alumni Association Scholarship’ to a student from the Philippines!
